STP 06-28-2015: Warmer and Drier East, Isolated-to-Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Over the High Country

Issue Date: Sunday, June 28th, 2015
Issue Time: 9:00 AM MDT


It would be hard to point to a better Saturday than what Colorado experienced yesterday. Due to upper-level high pressure continuing to build across the western US, isolated-to-scattered showers and thunderstorms were confined to the higher terrain. Most storms produced gusty outflow winds, lightning, and brief light-to-moderate rain. Hail observations greater than 0.5 inch were reported in Saguache (0.88 inch) and La Plata (0.70 inch) Counties; no other reports were made yesterday. Abundant sunshine was the main story yesterday for the majority of Colorado’s population – a great way to spend a late-June weekend.

No other flash flooding was reported yesterday.
